The focus was detected at a depth of about 40 kilometres, according to preliminary data. The epicentre was located in the sea, at a distance of approximately 92 kilometres from the city of Sendai, with a population of over 1 million.

A powerful 6.0-magnitude earthquake was reported off the coast of the Honshu and Tohoku regions of Japan on Thursday night, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC).

There have been no immediate reports of specific earthquake-related damage or casualties, and no tsunami warning has been given by local authorities.

Japanese TV channel NHK has published a video from camera surveillance that is streaming the tremors felt on the island.

Despite the fact that the earthquake occurred relatively close to the infamous Fukushima nuclear power plant, there have been no reports of aftereffects from the aftershocks there so far.

Strong earthquakes occur on a regular basis in Japan, which is situated in a seismically active area known as the Ring of Fire.
